Year 11 Expressive Arts

Today, year 11 textiles are displaying their work to parents, staff and pupils. They have all worked hard throughout the course and produced some wonderful pieces as well as learning new skills. Well done year 11!

Making print blocks

As part of our textiles project, year 7 are making their own printing blocks. They will use the printing blocks to create a repeat pattern on their wind socks. Fantastic work year 7!

Textiles, using computer aided manufacture

Today some of 8G started making hats out of recycled fleece. The fleece began its life as plastic bottles before it was recycled. We started sewing our hats using the sewing machine and used an industrial embroidery machine to begin to decorate them. We think they look very professional.
